crazy crafters may blog hop sneak peak

Well folks welcome back top this months edition of the crazy crafters blog hop.  This month the theme is Sneak Peak, in anticipation of the new catalogue that is to be released WORLDWIDE June the 2nd.... eeeek.

So this month I didn't get to order any of the things for the sneak peek, yes I know sad face :( lol.  However I was lucky enough to attend Inspire Create Share on the Gold Coast so I did get a few freebies from there that I could use.... yippie.  Also I had a crafty day with my beautiful friend Michelle at Hello Day Cards and I got to use her stamp set that she got at the managers meeting ( OMG I love it!!!!), and it wasn't on the preorder list so I got to use something only a few of the ladies in our team have, lucky lucky.  Anyway that's enough chit chat.  I have two cards here to show you.  So lets have a look

One that I made at home with the Bohemian DSP that we got at convention and the stamp set we also received there also called I Think You're Great.  The Colour used for stamping the main image and both the sentiment and the background for the sentiment was Blackberry Bliss.  I also used the Hardwood stamp set which I stamped with Chocolate Chip ink,  I then got a dry baby wipe and rubbed the stamped dsp image with Craft White ink to make the colour a little more subtle.
  The script stamp behind the sentiment is from the By The Tide stamp set, and the sentiment is from the Sassy Salutations stamp set.  I used an antique Brad which I cut the back off (careful it's sharp and will cut you, don't ask..) and then stuck to the sentiment strip which I had layered up with the dsp off cuts and raised up with dimensionals.  This was all then stuck to the Very Vanilla Card Base with Snail Adhesive.

Next up is a card with a thought... When I was preparing to leave convention I saw this beautiful little blue dragonfly that I took a picture of and knew that as soon as June 2 came around I was going to buy the Awesomely Artistic stamp set and make the wings with the plastic sheeting that you get with the photopolymer to make the little see through bits of their wings.
  Anyways cast your eyes downwards and we shall take a look .

So I have a Whisper White Card base, a piece of Whisper White that I stamped with the Hardwood stamp using the Soft Suede Ink and then sponged with Crumb Cake Next up I used the hession piece of the Awesomely Artistic set that was stamped in Memento and then gone over with a stamp n write Blackberry Bliss Marker and sponged in Soft Suede. 
I used the stamped imaged from the Awesomely Artistic set in Memento set as the focal point for this card and I coloured it in using Blender Pens with Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive.  Then fussy cut and highlighted a few of the flowers with crystal effects.  I made a little frame using some Whisper White scraps sponged with Smoky slate.  The Dragonfly the little flower disc and the sentiment were all stamped with Memento.
I coloured them using the aqua painters in the same Blackberry Bliss and Smoky Slate but the Dragonfly I did with Bermuda Bay.  I then fussy cut and layered everything up put some Linen Thread for a little more something and for the pretty wings I used the scrap from assembling the photopolymer sets for the wings.  I coloured it in using Bermuda bay and thenn went over it with Crystal Effects to make It stay.  So there you have it.  I hope you like and please be sure to leave a message for me as I love feedback.

Next up on the blog is the lovely Rose

  3. Once again dragonfly's are dabomb it is so far my favourite stamp out of all the thousands that Petra seems to have. I have read your instructions for the wood stamp creation and have no idea what any of it means however i am going to try to work it out cause it looks cool, dark and mysterious. I can make that manly :) Petra says she will interpret for me :)
